Lebron James Donates $20K to Obama

By: Harry Waisbren

Glad to see the Lebron endorsement is out of the way. Donating that much money is also a sign of his enthusiasm for Obama, and as crazy as it is to say, I can see black athletes and entertainers alike making an impact on this election.

Obama is already getting compared to Jackie Robinson, so why shouldn't this be an election where athletes' opinions matter? The sports world certainly knows a lot about integration, and they might have some lessons to give our lily white establishment that is more concerned with Obama's response to McCain's racist dogwhistles than the racism itself (via digby):
